p.2 The body of Mrs. Hoskin, of Kingston, who was lost on board the Vermillion, has been found in the lake, near the scene of the disaster.

From the Prince Edward Gazette.

Having occasionally heard the remark that the Steamer Union is an old slow boat, induces me to express my opinion that if "slow," is very "sure," which will readily be admitted is attributable to the management of her skilful and well experienced Captain, Charles Burne.

I am creditably informed the Union has not failed to call at her usual and various landings, on the north shore, once during the whole season. She may have detained the traveller, and kept him in suspence a few hours, in bad weather, by remaining in safe harbor. But she has generally been punctual to the time, for which much praise is due her prudent commander. His long experience upon these waters and his gentlemanly deportment toward passengers, entitles him to a superior boat, and it would be very gratifying to the writer, to welcome him next season in command of a boat more popular and speedy, touching at the small but rising ports at which the Mail Steamers do not call.

Wellington, Nov. 1842. A RECENT PASSENGER
